DESCRIPTION

Stunning, grass-like foreground plant. Takashi Amano’s fantastic tank compositions have really pushed this plant into the limelight. In the wild it only grows submersed in slow-moving, shaded water. This plant is known for being very demanding. Still, it can be grown if you take care of the important factors such as adequate light, CO2 supplementation, and nutrient-rich substrate. A large group of B. japonica makes a real spectacle in an aquarium. With very strong lighting these plants will show intense red coloring.
